The author wishes to express his appreciation of the many persons whose efforts helped make possible the present volume. These include:
Messrs. Camille Cazedessus, Jr., Vernell Coriell, John Harwood, and David G. Van Arnam, Burroughs fans and scholars all, whose prior researches have been used shamelessly throughout.
Mr. Hulbert Burroughs and Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., for whose hospitality, assistance in locating Burroughs documents, access to and permission to publish the correspondence and other hitherto unpublished material in both the introduction and main text of this book, especial gratitude is due.
The Rev. Henry Hardy Heins, bibliographer, scholar, and friend, whose kindness and patience exceed even his almost unbelievable knowledge.
Messrs. Alfonso Williamson, Reed Crandall, and Frank Frazetta, for the Burroughs illustrations in this book.
Finally, a question: If the editor edits everyone else's books, who edits the editor's book? And an answer: David Garfinkel. Thank you, Dave.
Richard A. Lupoff
The “with an essay by” author would like to thank the following individuals (in impersonal alphabetical order) for providing assistance, needed information, or simply serving as a sounding board: Steven Barnes, Frank X. Blisard, Danton Burroughs, Alan Dean Foster, Scott Tracy Griffin, Scotty Henderson, John Eric Holmes, J. G. Huckenpöhler, Will Murray, and James Van Hise.
Oh, and Richard Lupoff for asking.
And whoever stocked the book section of Towers Department Store in Mississauga, Ontario, back in June of 1973.
